Tribal Movement in Orissa: A Struggle Against Modernisation?
AbstractContemporary India is witnessing a wide number of micro-level social movements struggling against industrialisation, big dams and other similar development projects. This paper looks at the tribal movement against the mining industry in Kucheipadar village of Rayagad district in Orissa. The field survey was carried out in this area in order to understand the movement’s stand against mining as an anti-development activity. It was found that tribals in this part of the world are not ready for modernisation coming from outside and invading into their livelihoods. This study captures their struggle against the mining industry and their articulation of demands and strategies opposing modernisation.
